Squirting is a form of ejaculation where a white-ish or clear fluid is released from the vulva during sexual pleasure or orgasm. There is some debate about what squirt is and where exactly this fluid comes from, as well as if all women can squirt. It's generally believed to be fluid released from the Skene's glands, a set of glands located near the urethral sponge, when the surrounding erectile tissue is stimulated.
How to squirt
What is squirting?
There are certain sex acts that have developed a sort of cult following, and squirting is one of them. And squirting often goes hand-in-hand with female orgasm, which is one of the reasons your partner might be into it, too. Pun not intended. We'll get there very soon, but first, there's something you should know. When some people with a vulva are sufficiently aroused, they're able to "squirt" a clear-ish liquid through their urethra—kinda like how people with a penis are able to ejaculate, except in this case, the process has nothing to do with reproduction. Squirting fluid can come out in a variety of volumes.
The bottom line.
For starters, how about diving into sex educator and Soft Paris co-founder Anne-Charlotte Desruelle's simple guide on making women and other people with vulvas squirt. Softly and slowly stimulate the G-spot. As your G-spot gets stimulated and you start feeling more aroused, the erectile tissue will fill with blood and the G-spot and the labia will get larger. Keep in mind that parts of the G-spot may feel sore, so take care to stimulate the sore parts gently. Be conscious of the different sensations in your body and alter the pressure accordingly. Keep in mind that it should feel pleasant. For many people with vulvas, ejaculation will only take place after the vulva and G-spot have filled with blood become larger. Because the ejaculate originates from the urethra, feeling like you need to pee is a move in the right direction…. Some people only squirt when the G-spot is being stimulated for example, via penetration , for others, it's the opposite and takes place when the vagina is not being penetrated.
Anything to do with female sexuality has been, and continues to be, taboo in the strongest sense of the word. This is what fuels my work as a sex therapist turned neuroscientist —and exactly what I explore in my Glamour column, Ask. Nan , and in my new book, Why Good Sex Matters. The truth is we probably know just as much if not more about the composition of the fluids that flowed on the surface of Mars billions of years ago than we do about the nature of what is expelled by the human female during sex. How is that possible, given that references to female ejaculation date back to fourth-century Taoist texts?
